Move. Play. Go Outside

Posted by in Personal Development

I’m so far behind on the Trust30 posts, it’s not even funny. I’m catching up though! 2 – 3 a day will keep the doctor away. Or was that apples? I never thought one little book could be so packed full of inspirational quotes, but Emerson has done it. Every time I read a new part of Self-Reliance, I get “anything is possible” goosebumps and start thinking about what I’m going next, what I’m going to do next, and what I’m going to write next. Then I don’t do anything….read more

Too Scary to Write

Posted by in Personal Development

Right, so just as I think I’m getting the hang of this self-trust, deep introspection, write from the heart thing, Mary Jaksch (how do you even pronounce that?) throws a curveball. Emerson says: “Always do what you are afraid to do.” What is ‘too scary’ to write about? Try doing it now. Wow. I thought I had it figured. We’d get these prompts and I’d dutifully write out what came to mind after reading the Emerson quote and the prompt. I liked it. It got me thinking about things I…read more

Keep Crushing It

Posted by in Personal Development

There will be an agreement in whatever variety of actions, so they be each honest and natural in their hour. – Ralph Waldo Emerson What would you say to the person you were five years ago? What will you say to the person you’ll be in five years? – Corbett Barr This is another prompt from #trust30, a 30 day writing challenge that pushes you question what you’re currently doing and to trust yourself. The previous questions have been deep thinkers and this one from Corbett is no exception. Five…read more

Who Tells You What You Can Do?

Posted by in Lifestyle Design

This #trust30 post is about the long prompt by Matt Cheuvront. Matt dares us to be bold. To get out of the flow of normal society and do something you’ve always dreamed about doing. You have to forget “being realistic” and start to move the other direction. The crazy one, the childish one, the mad one, and embrace the possibility that your crazy dream could come true. Amazingly there is only one thing in the way of your crazy dream coming true. But it’s a big one. It’s you. Think…read more

Sometimes Stopping is More Important Than Starting

Posted by in Personal Development

Another prompt today from #Trust30. If yesterday’s from Chris Guillebeau got you excited about travel, Jonathan’s today will get you excited about life. Come Alive – Jonathan Mead Life wastes itself while we are preparing to live ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson It was too good of a quote to not write again. And to think about. And to live by. Jonathan asks us to stop preparing to live and do what actually makes us come alive. It’s one of the most difficult things to start doing but is one of…read more

Where Are You Travelling Next?

Posted by in Personal Development, Travel

After finding Chris Guillebeau a few years by a random link talking about how he was travelling the world and visiting every country before he was 35, I’ve seen him do some incredible things. The latest of which pretty much blew my mind. The World Domination Summit went far above my expectations for the non-conforming conference and it was the first time they put it together! Everything went smoothly and every time I turned around I met another like-minded person that had big, awesome ideas. It’s no surprise that his…read more

A Focused Post-It

Posted by in Lifestyle Design

I started writing with the #Trust30 group on May 31st. It’s a fantastic initiative to get things moving when you’re blogging and really make you think about what you’re doing with your life. Even if you don’t want to blog about them, you can write them out in a journal or just spend a day putting together your own thoughts. I’ve currently got 2 other posts about the first 3 prompts, “15 Minutes to Live” and “Today and One String Belief“. Post-It Question – Jenny Blake After a beautiful quote…read more

Today and One Strong Belief

Posted by in Personal Development

Today is another prompt from #Trust30. Check it out and sign up. If ‘the voyage of the best ship is a zigzag line of a hundred tacks,’ then it is more genuine to be present today than to recount yesterdays. How would you describe today using only one sentence? Tell today’s sentence to one other person. Repeat each day. The first thing that came to mind when I saw this one was consistency. I aim to be consistent in my efforts to create the exact life I want every day….read more

15 Minutes to Live

Posted by in Personal Development

Just kidding! I don’t really have 15 more minutes to live. If I did I wouldn’t be writing on this blog for it. Makes me think why I’m writing on here in the first place… The prompt is from #Trust30. You pledge for the next 30 days to do blog, journal or create something each day over the next 30 days. Each day  there is a prompt from an original thinker or doer. Each day you get the prompt in your email and you do your thing. Tweet it, talk…read more
